Business meetings were made lots of fun
"i operate an international business and I've used this home twice to host visitors from the Philippines for week long stays. The house worked great for four guests. Everyone had lots of room and privacy. And, we enjoyed the quaint ambiance to host in-house meetings, family style meals and a laid back summer lifestyle in Newburyport. We'll be back next year. Thanks Pam for being so attentive to my groups."

"We just completed our 3rd stay at Rocky Neck Retreat. It is a wonderful top floor apartment with an outstanding, huge deck overlooking the waters of the back bay. We spent lots of time enjoying the deck at all times of the day, often eating our meals out there. Half of the deck is covered, and half open. Brian and Karen, the owners, are very attentive to whatever you need, but also give you your privacy. There was a constant breeze thru the apartment and each room has its own ceiling fan. Even in the hottest part of the summer, we truly enjoyed the wonderful breezes and fresh cool air. We give this experience our highest scores, and we will be back for a 4th time before too long."

"This was our 6th year on Plum Island, but our first year at this beach house, and this house is my favorite. It is tastefully decorated with all the amenities and has that homey feel to it. Aside from having plenty of towel, which is a must at a beach house, and on outdoor shower, another must at a beach house in my opinion, it has a lovely view of the basin while being a very short walk to the ocean side/beach. There were plenty of rooms and baths to accommodate our 4 teenagers and us while providing plenty of space and privacy for all. The older kids would be on the lower deck, while the younger teenagers were on the upper deck, while my husband and I enjoyed the front porch. The enclosed front room is lovely for playing games and lounging when you want to be out of the sun but still cozy. Arlene even remembers all the little touches like soap, paper products, basic condiments/spices and even shampoo. I can't say enough great things about this place. And when my daughter lost a sentimental necklace, Arlene retrieved it for us and mailed it to us. We're looking forward to returning. The only thing that would have made it perfect was if we could bring our dog with us, but we find that many places on Plum Island don't permit that."

"This home and it's owner, Deborah, should be rated a "10" because it was the most pleasant experience I've encountered during my years of renting from VRBO. The front bedroom was the perfect place for my daughter to get ready for her wedding and the photographer took some great shots there. The open layout of the house and deck was perfect for entertaining after the dress rehearsal and a brunch for family members the morning after the wedding. All the guests were in awe of the beauty and comfort of this home.
The location was perfect - took many walks to enjoy the beautiful town of Rockport. I have already started the sales pitch on my husband to return there next September."
